Correct option is
D

kisses

Options A, B and C are incorrect as none of them are the plural form of the word-kiss. It may also be noted that all of them have an apostrophe which is not normally present in plural words.
The plural form of nouns ending with -ch, -s, -sh, -x, etc is formed by suffixing "es" to the noun. Here the noun kiss, ends with -s. Hence, its plural form is: kisses. Option D is the correct answer.
